Things I Should Have Blogged About, But Didn’t

Shahs of Sunset Season 3 2014 Final Episode

There were some minor things that happened last week that I didn’t get around to blogging, mostly because none of it by itself seemed to warrant a blog. I’m cleaning out my post suggestion emails today and I thought I would just list some of them here briefly.

Shah of Sunset premiere has been pulled indefinitely. The premiere was set for October 13th but the post production crew has walked out. A curious thing has been going on with reality show production workers.  Primarily in New York and California, production crews on reality TV are pushing to join the unions that normally represent scripted  television.  The whole reason reality shows became so popular was a writer’s strike by scripted writers many years ago. During the strike, networked hustled to find new things to put on the air and a variety of reality shows, game shows, and singing contests hit the airwaves. Production workers then began to work in reality based TV that was not unionized. Now that reality shows have script writers and production works long insane hours, they are not wanting to work as independent contractors anymore and to be covered like normal employees with medical benefits and sick days. Shahs is produced by a subsidiary of Ryan Seacrest Productions and they supposedly open to negotiations but nothing has happened yet so post production is walking the picket line.

Wendy Williams returns tomorrow.  She has promised to literally eat crow on the episode after promising that she would if Kim and Kanye lasted over 72 days. I know she is often wrong about her hot topics, but I still sort of miss her show when it is not on. Will you be watching? I’m hoping this helps me to get up earlier in the mornings and stop staying up all night. Continue reading

So What’s Phaedra Up To Today?

RHOA Phaedra

Not much really. She’s laying low at home with the kids and the babysitter. The film crew showed up this afternoon for just over an hour. There was no drama, no security alarms, no wild stories unlike the last time. But hey, they haven’t been gone two hours yet, so there is still time. I suppose she had some talking heads to do for her jailbird husband storyline. I’m torn between a game of GUESS THE HEADLINE!  Perhaps something like Phaedra Refuses to Leave House! or maybe Phaedra Drowns Her Worries in Boxed Wine! Bravo Production Hold Intervention!

I find it odd that not one time has any housewife shown up to film at Phaedra’s house. Not even Kandi… Continue reading

I am so behind today and only have an hour and a half until Couples Therapy.  While drama raged on at Phaedra’s house, the fashionista gang of RHOA is in NYC to support Cynthia Bailey’s participation in Betsy Johnson’s show. Confirmed so far are Kandi, Kenya and Demetria.  Clearly Phaedra is not there, nor is Nene or Porsha.  Not sure about Claudia.  Sorry I just don’t have time to research this today. I am doing about ten posts at once right now. Continue reading

Police Arrive on Filming Scene at Phaedra’s House

RHOA Police arrive on scenePolice arrived at Phaedra’s house around 4:30 this afternoon.  Bravo cameras were still there filming an interior scene with Phaedra. Ayden was wandering around the neighbor’s houses despite his babysitter being on the scene. Ayden has several young playmates in the neighborhood but they are all at school. He is playing with a neighbor’s cat at the moment. I have also learned that Phaedra took the boys and the nannies to the beach when she left last Friday.  The rest of the story is here.

The TMZ story is false. Apollo is NOT at the house. Phaedra has had an alarm system installed that has been malfunctioning a lot lately. The police have been out to the house several times since it was installed as has the Alarm company. There was no screaming, no Apollo, no confrontation. Continue reading

Apollo Nida Turns Himself In; Phaedra is Already Filming.

Oh Look! It seems I am the source for another major websites story again today! Even still the site manages to get things wrong.  Phaedra and Apollo filmed their last Real Housewives of Atlanta scenes last Thursday in a shoot that went late into the evening. The next day Phaedra took the boys and left.  Reports that Phaedra was concerned for her physical safety are not true. In the last few weeks Apollo and Phaedra have been living together without any major incidents and have entertained friends and family who came to say their goodbyes over Labor Day weekend. Apollo spent his last two days home alone without visitors washing his car and riding his brand new motorcycle. On Sunday Apollo, left and headed to Tennessee  where he spent the last two days of his freedom partying in Nashville. This morning he made the three-hour drive to Lexington and turned himself in.  Perhaps that site can make some corrections to its story.

I’d like to move away from the #FelonsByBravo in New Jersey and focus on one of our hometown #FelonsByBravo , Apollo Nida, who is getting ready to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday. I’ve been hold back some steaming hot tea.

For the past few weeks, I’ve had a source very close to the situation with Phaedra and Apollo updating me on what has been going on. I’ve been keeping this under my hat to avoid outing my source and causing them any inconvenience, but the time has come to let you in on what my exclusive Tamara Tattles spies have been reporting.

It’s been a long hot summer to say the least between Apollo and Phaedra Parks. For most of May and June, Apollo was doing his Farewell Tour through the south’s sleaziest small town strip clubs “promoting his brand.”  He was the cover boy for Sister2Sister magazine for the month of May and was going buck wild on twitter posting videos about “haters” who were “disparaging his brand.” He begged Twitter to “verify him” as a celebrity (they did not oblige.)  It was phenomenally hysterical. During that time, Phaedra went on her Southern Belle Prayer Cloth Tour so that she would be out-of-town whenever he was not.  It was War of the Roses and they went weeks without being home a the same time. Apollo spent some time in Philly. Phaedra spent some time with Kandi and Fantasia in Cancun for a big blowout girl’s trip to celebrate Fantasia’s birthday. The unhappy couple was anywhere away from home that they could be for months.

In July filming for RHOA began and things began to change.  Apollo stopped the self-aggrandizing tweets and began just asking people on Twitter for emotional support. On July 8th his “eight-year” sentence was handed down. Phaedra did not support him or go to court. He was salty and gave some more delusional interviews. He really doesn’t know when to shut up.  You can read about the actual amount of time Apollo will serve here. Continue reading

Nene Leakes, Sherri Shepherd Both Land Role on Broadway

Real Housewives of Atlanta Nene Leakes Episode 15 Season six news

 

This is something I did not see coming.  When Nene Leakes and Sherri Shepherd were both rumored to be up for the same part in the Broadway production of Cinderella,  the initial rumors were they were angling for the part of the fairy godmother. In that story, to me the most important point was that Nene was so butthurt over comments made by Wendy Williams she was finger-painting  “Wendell” on pocket books with nail polish.

As it turns out, both Sherri Shepherd and Nene Leakes have gotten the part of Cinderella’s mother to be played across from Keke Palmer. Cinderella has been on Broadway since January of 2013 with a predominantly white cast.  That will all change next Tuesday when Sherri Shepherd and Keke Palmer take over the roles of on September 9th. Shepherd will  be the first African-American woman to play the evil stepmother on Broadway. She will play the role through November 22.  Nene Leakes will take on the role on November 25th presumably playing the role until the curtain falls for the last time January 3, 2015.

Don’t Be Tardy Double Recap

Kim spent most of her camping time in this robe!

Kim spent most of her camping time in this robe!

Kim gets a ton of Fed Ex deliveries but is dismayed to discover it is all camping stuff for Kroy. Kroy is forcing the family to go on a camping trip. Kim thinks that taking kids camping is not safe. Does she think a dingo might take her baby?

But before in camping trip, you must take your assistant and your husband to the cosmetic doctor for Botox and a facial peel for Kroy. Fairskinned people should not have those peels, their skin is too sensitive.

Kroy goes over the camping rules which include no cell phones. Brielle is refusing to go, but Kroy says she has no option. Kroy continues on with what to do in case you encounter a bear. Kroy and Kim make fun of Lana’s weight.

Shun arrives with shopping bags from Dick’s Sporting Goods. They try to get Shun to go and she says she  doesn’t want to sleep in a tent with the help. Sweetie is no more the help than she is. Kim decides that the babies are not going so Sweetie is staying behind with them. That sucks. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Atlanta Explode in Puerto Rico

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

ATTN: This is an independently sourced story EXCLUSIVE to Tamaratattles.com theft of this article will result in bad karma, Ebola virus, and syphilis. Wouldn’t it just be smarter to use a small portion with a clear link to this page as the source?

I managed to get in touch with Source who is in Puerto Rico at the moment.  All of the RHOA flew in yesterday for their girls trip for season seven. The weather may be hot but the fighting is even hotter. Already. On day one.

The premise of the trip is that new housewife, Demetria McKinney has a “concert” this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Demetria is an actress and singer and has recently released a single, 100, to coincide with her stint on RHOA.  That said, I can’t find any publicity online for where exactly Demetria is singing.  I admit I didn’t try that hard because it really doesn’t matter.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Four: Remembrance of Things Past

Phaedra face2

In case you have missed any previous chapters, here is a handy dandy link list.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter One: When is a Deposition NOT A Deposition?

Yet another motion to compel. Phaedra was extremely uncooperative at her deposition.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Two: A Tale Told By An Idiot Full of Sound And Fury Signifying Nothing.

Phaedra refuses to answer pretty much every question about Apollo.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Three: I Did Know Once, But I Have Sort of Forgotten.

Phaedra has amnesia. She can’t remember she has a workout DVD business with Apollo. She can’t remember her accountants name, she can’t remember her bank branch, in fact she denies every going into a bank.

In this chapter we will focus on Phaedra’s relationship with Angela. In one of the depositions of Angela’s former boyfriends he seems to think that Phaedra and Angela had a more intimate relationship than just friends. Let’s see what Phaedra has to say… Continue reading

Phaedra Parks Puts Smyrna Home on the Market

RHOA Phaedra's Smyrna HomeI am REALLY getting tired of Phaedra stories and you probably are too, but people keep sending me information and I might as well get it all out there. Phaedra Parks, Smyrna home was put on the marked in the last day or so and listed by Keller Williams. The home is priced to sell at $349, 900. Phaedra paid $322,000 in 2001 according to Zillow. A quick look at the tax records show that the home has always been listed solely in Phaedra’s name and Apollo was not added to the deed when the couple married in 2009.

From the Keller Williams listing, “This charming Smyrna beauty offers 3 finished levels that your most discriminate buyer will adore! Completely renovated, this spacious home features 5 bedrooms, 5 full bath, 1 half bath, gleaming hardwood floors w/an open floor plan and large kitchen that overlooks the great room. Grand 2 story foyer, separate dining room, and a large master suite w/walk-in California closets. The finished basement has an in-law/guest suite, full kitchen and bathroom with a private entrance, it’s the perfect space to entertain! This is a must see! “

It is a lovely home; however, it’s a McMansion neighborhood. I am not sure everyone really gets what that term means in the south. Essentially, it is a development where large homes are built on small lots and they are all pretty much the same floor plan. Here in the south you can get a large, 4,000 square foot five bedroom, five bath house in the high $200 thousands. Continue reading
